    After going through the advised steps to edit the /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist, I saved the file. Then, I went to /Boot and the folder was empty. There is no folder named "Arguments" inside the Boot folder. This is my 1st build and all of my system specs are in my bio. Am I missing something here?

    Following the config.plist changes, I did the reboot as instructed and now the system is stuck at about 3/4 load on the apple load screen. It will not load past this point. HELP PLEASE?!?!?!

    I decided to run in verbose to see what came up. I noticed the IGPU Failed to initialize graphic firmware. I have no idea what that means, but I'm hoping by sharing the screenshot, it will provide more info for someone willing to provide assistance. IMG_6962.JPG

    Have you removed the USB pen that you used to install Sierra since performing these steps?

    It may be purely coincidental, but I fought this issue for days, but as soon as I ejected the USB and rebooted, my graphics card was there and it's been working like a dream since then!

    Hi everyone,

    I've gone through all the pages and responses in this thread. Still, no solution worked for me. I'm attaching my config.plist and some other information that might be relevant.

    Is there anything I'm missing?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi. Can someone help me to get my Palit GTX 650 working (only 1024 resolution available)? I tried to use MultiBeast, then installed the 10.12.06 web driver. Mounted EFI changed the plist like in the tutorial. I don't know what I did wrong but still only that one resolution. My motherboard is Gigabyte Z77-DS3H. I use system def iMac14,2 .

    For the life of me I just can’t get the NVIDIA Web Drivers working on macOS Sierra 10.12.6.
    Everytime I select ‘NVIDIA Web Driver’ in the NVIDIA Driver Manager, it always goes back to ‘OS X Default Graphics Driver’ after rebooting.
    I’ve spent countless days and clean installs trying to get the Web Drivers to work with no succes, I’m stuck and don’t know what to do.
    I’ve read this entire thread and tried every suggestion, but no luck.

    After clean installation of Sierra, this is what I’ve tried for enabling the Web Drivers:
    • Installed Clover and selecting: EmuVariableUefi-64 and Install RC scripts on target volume like problem 6 in this thread
    • Made sure that nv_disable=1 and nvda_drv=1 weren’t in my config.plist since these boot flags no longer work in Sierra
    • Using TextEdit, I added NvidiaWeb to SystemParameters in my config.plist, just like it says in this thread
    • Added Lilu.kext and NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other
    • Modified CsrActiveConfig to 0x67 in config.plist to completely disable System Integrity Protection (SIP)
    • Installed the latest Nvidia Drivers 378.05.05.25f01 for macOS Sierra 10.12.6
    • Disabled intergrated graphics in the BIOS

    I don’t know if manually editing the config.plist in TextEdit instead of using Clover Configurator or any other software makes a difference, I don’t think it should be if everything is entered correctly.

    I’m going absolutely nuts trying to fix these drivers. Help would be greatly appreciated!

    1.Please post Screen capture of Nvidia web startup Kext (information) (under Extensions) from System report and any other pertinent Nvida kexts? Loaded or NO? copy entire information section please...
    2. It is obviously not loaded as you graphics card is not displaying in IN about this MAC.
    3. Rebuild kext and kernel caches with Terminal. copy report on kext cache rebuild please, and post.
    4. Use Clover Configurator
